UX Strategy – Design Leadership

Apr 2019
£ 490

Are you in the process of building up the UX capacity in your organisation? Would you like to learn more about how you can introduce more user centred design thinking and processes?

In this  UX Strategy course, we will bring you through a framework to help you think about and plan your own UX strategy. We will look at questions such as; how and where do you begin? What do you need to establish in terms of processes, people, and policies to implement your strategy? And what can you do to bring others along with you on the journey in order to create a truly customer-centric culture?

Measurement is a key part of a successful strategy and we recommend as a natural progression in your learning, the next course after this one, is our one-day course dedicated to measuring the user experience.

  • Learning more about which processes you need to implement to ensure that robust and joined-up user centred design practices are being followed

What to expect on the day

Throughout the day we run several activates, based on case study material where you and your classmates will get the opportunity to apply aspects of the strategic framework to different situations.  You will walk away with a framework and templates that you can use immediately in developing your own processes and strategy.

You will receive a print-out of all training materials and course activities. There is no exam in this course but all successful participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the day.
